The Gap Course
Bridging the Gap to the industry – your path to Hollywood
Working on the premise “The art of acting is in some ways the most exacting art of all, and without constant schooling, the actor will stop halfway.” (Peter Brook)
Ask anyone in Hollywood and they’ll tell you it takes years of work to get there. Unless properly coached, trained and prepared, aspiring actors can spend their lives in temporary employment waiting for their ‘big break’. The Gap year-course has been created to bridge the gap into the industry. It includes:
- Expert training in stage, screen and musical theatre skills.
- Performance opportunities and real feedback.
- Range of styles, for all types of acting roles.
- Opportunities to consult with industry professionals & attend industry events.
Rest assured, this is not a course for people looking to waste time. If you are serious about your craft, there is only one place to go: The Actors’ Hub. Sign up now.

Self-recorded audition pieces
Sometimes it is difficult to attend auditions in person because of distance, family reasons or work restrictions. We are therefore giving you the opportunity to send in two self-recorded audition pieces and a personal statement to camera.
You may record on video or iPhone.
We will require:
- Two 2-minute contrasting scenes or monologues of your own choice. The choices need to reflect your own age range and be about something to which you can relate. If it is a scene, then have someone reading for you off camera but near enough to be heard. You may sit or stand, depending on the demands of the scene. Do not let the constraints of the camera stop strong choices or stop you from any movement. Shot needs to cover top of head to waist.
- A 2-minute personal statement talking about your acting/performance background and experience, and why you want to do the Gap.
- At the start of the video, introduce yourself direct to camera (your name, your age and from where you come). This needs to be a full-length shot (head to foot.)
Your audition video should be sent (via a Vimeo link or similar) to email@example.com
For those who have completed the Gap 1 or Gap 2 course, schedule an audition for Gap 2
